What makes a tattoo a bad thing in Western society?
Even in today's society tattoos are frowned upon, why?
I think maybe because a lot are poorly done. Also, they are supposed to be a mark of rebellion, but now they are do common that it's a contradiction. Personally, I like them. But not on me.
Depends what they are, IMO. If a tattoo is meaningful and unoffensive that's one thing...a friend of mine got her deceased father's signature tattooed on the inside of her wrist. I will argue that that is one awesome tattoo that will never turn into a regret. I can't see many other people saying that it was a bad decision for her to make or that it's hideous/inappropriate, etc either.
But if someone gets a racy sexist/racist/culturist symbol or else one that's just too generic it symbolizes nothing in particular (in which case why have it stuck permanently to your skin?) I wouldn't say that was necessarily a good choice.
Everyone is entitled to their own decisions, freedom of expression and all that, I'm just saying that not all tattoos will be seen in the same light depending on what they are. A naked chick, swastika, or rose/heart/star is not the same as a tribute to a deceased family member and I think most would agree on that if on nothing else I have said.
Actually they're not necessarily. Tatoos are becoming more fashionable
They're just not professional
I just do not like them--on men or women. I wonder how they are going to look when those people are 20 or 30 years older. I had a job interview the other day and was told to dress professionally. I am 60. If I would walk in not dressed professionally, they should show me the door. However, the first person to greet me was a young woman with visible tattoos up her left arm. Did not look very professional to me.
I did not get the job.
